John Zent, American Hunter
Back around 1980, at the peak in the number of licensed hunters in the United States, many of us headed out to family farms to pursue our game. You could look for deer or pot a few rabbits, and afterwards visit grandma and grandpa. However, that All-American scenario had already begun to change along with ownership of the land. As the total number of U.S. farms fell gradually during the ensuing decades, big farms got bigger, small farms got smaller and the number of mid-sized farms (100 to 250 acres) declined.
